The article focuses on the state of cotton markets in the U.S. and worldwide. Rainfall at about 0.25 to 1.5 inches occurred in the Cotton Belt for a week, though it did not mitigate the effects of the drought, causing cotton prices within the U.S. region to fall by 6 to 7 cents. Global cotton production is forecasted to fall by 6.35 million bales due to forecasted declines in major cotton producers including China, India, and Australia.
